Despite the weak market, RVNL shares have given good returns to the investors in the recent weeks. RVNL stock has rallied 291 per cent in last one year period and analysts suggest investors should avoid investing in it now.
Market experts suggest that investors should book profits now and adopt a ‘Buy on Dip’ strategy.
RVNL, the infrastructure arm of Indian Railways, undertakes projects for construction of new lines, doubling of tracks, railway electrification, metro projects, construction of major bridges, workshops, cable stayed bridges and institute buildings.

Pravesh Gaur, Senior Technical Analyst, Swastik Investmart suggests that investors should adopt a buy on dip strategy for RVNL stock.

Hence, investors should wait till the stock reaches the price of Rs 90, then this stock can be included in the portfolio for the long term.
